Butterfinger, we barely knew yah…

WISH 72: Character Interruptus

Talk about a few characters you had to stop playing before their stories felt finished. Where do you think they would have gone?

Sara Parker, a.k.a. Bombshell, was a pretty cool Supers character. A leader who didn’t want the job, a secret identity, a second-layer of secret identity, a dark secret, and more character hooks than you could shake a stick at.
Where might she have gone? Well, I think Dave would have been missing at least a few lovely opportunities if Sarah hadn’t at the very least (1) been kicked out of the group as a spy, (2) been kicked out of the group (again) as a traitor, and (3) run into her ‘dead’ parents, apparently working for the bad guys.

Well, certainly the parents would have shown up. If I decided she really had any, and simply wasn’t hatched from a tube.
It’s hard to say. The whole campaign was (though my own doing) far more complicated than a twenty-year-old soap opera. I’m pleased that I’ve been able to start inserting some campaign background elements into the canned modules I’m using thus far, but slowly.
